This 49-bed Toorak residence takes you back to the grandeur of the 19th century with its Queen Anne style architecture. The stately mansion hosts a range of additional services to recapture the feeling of life at home.
A gracious entrance, with its stained glass door and columned portico, opens onto the high-ceilinged interior and manicured courtyards of BlueCross Darnlee. The heritage-listed mansion comprises 49 private rooms, each with their own ensuite, accommodating residents with high and low care needs.
